    Looks good.
    I have a Star BM that may need the gunkote treatment.

    A friend of mine has a bead blaster with some kind of sand as a media.

    It seems to have given it a course enough finish for the DuraCoat to adhere to.

    Small parts were in the oven when I shot the frame and cylinder.

    I never have removed the crane on the other two I've done, so maybe I do it on the next one.

    nice .. sand is good enough to give it a bitof tooth / grab..

    and it never hurts to take the hole thing apart,

    then you can clean up all the smarts a little polish here.. little ,polish there

    D Frames are great, that should look good when you get the grips back on.
